The weekend's slippage...
Dinky little clutch, most of the mud removed (it's still a bit wet in this shot).
Shawl pin - now I just needs to knit me a shawl I think!
Yarn for dyeing. Yarn bought for dyeing doesn't count, right? (I am such a liar!)
Bought from the Wool Boat:
As you can see, I couldn't wait, this is going to be socks for the Cog.
I know some folks are snobby about acrylic - but I've always loved the James C Brett yarns. It's acrylic but it's NICE acrylic. It's lovely and soft, not at all squeaky, and yet can withstand several unpickings. It's always in such a lovely range of colours too. I gather Mr Brett is in his 90s and his son has taken over the business. Long may he prosper! I've recently used a very well known btand of DK colour-change yarn, and it was NOT as nice - in fact, the garment it produced has been given to charity to punish it for its sleaziness (loose gauge, but the pattern called for it) and squeakiness.
